Sandra J. Myers
Dec. 19, 1941 - Sept. 20, 2022
Sandra Jean Myers passed away September 20, 2022 in Fresno. She was a longtime resident of Fortuna. Born on December 19, 1941 in Monterey Park, her family moved to West Covina, where she attended West Covina High School (class of 1959) and graduated from Mount San Antonio Community College in Walnut. She was employed by Aero Jet ElectroSystems in Azusa for 15 years.
Shortly after leaving Aero Jet Sandie and her husband Bob moved up north to Garberville. Together they opened up a donut shop in Garberville called The Donut Barn. While Bob ran the shop, Sandie worked as secretary to the principal at South Fork High School in Miranda. While at South Fork she proudly displayed some of her memorabilia of the Los Angeles Dodgers, much to her sister’s dismay. During her time at South Fork Sandie and Bob lived in Garberville, Phillipsville (where their mobile home was flooded out) and then lived in Miranda. Finally in 1998 they moved to Fortuna, where she remained just prior to her death.
She retired from South Fork after 20-plus years. She thought she would enjoy her retirement doing crafts she loved, painting and photography. However she volunteered part time at Adult Day Care in Fortuna. She quickly got on their payroll and stayed several years until the Fortuna office closed.
Sandie enjoyed crafts, scrapbooking with friends and photography. She also enjoyed antiquing and had quite a collection of Coca Cola antiques. She enjoyed watching the Dodgers play and vying with her sister’s Giants on who had the better team.
Sandie was preceded in death by her parents Wallace and Helen Mullvain, her husband Virgil “Bob” Myers and her brother-in-law Ken Snyder. She is survived by her siblings Wallace Mullvain Jr, of Menifee, California, Cynthia Mullvain of West Covina and Sherrie Snyder of Fresno as well as two nephews Westley Mullvain of Tennessee, Casey Snyder of Roseville and niece Ashley Mullvain of Indiana. She is also survived by two granddaughters and four great grandchildren.
